The sweeping celebration of the Siyum HaShas is a true testimonial to the steadfast devotion of the Jewish People to Torah learning. But every movement must have an initiator. Who began the Daf Yomi system, empowering Jews of all occupations, across the religious spectrum, to unite in rigorous Torah learning? Read the fascinating biography of Rav Meir Shapiro, zt'l, founder of the Daf Yomi program, the dynamic impetus who had a vision to ensure the continuity of Torah commitment. Expertly written, this fascinating book will draw you back in time, to a world that was, and a dream that is, and will be, preserved forever.
